Attention K-Mart Shoppers

Mark Davis

OK, I have to admit this this is a strange collection. In the late 1980's and early 1990's, I worked for Kmart behind the service desk and the store played specific pre-recorded cassettes issued by corporate. This was background music, or perhaps you could call it elevator music. Anyways, I saved these tapes from the trash during this period and this video shows you my extensive, odd collection.

This is a digitized version of an in-store reel to reel tape that was played within a Kmart store in May 1988.  Amazingly, Kmart continued to play reel to reels until the late 1980's when cassettes were put into production. This is a genuine Tape-A-Thon product and the recording contains both sides, which are 1.5 hours long each, totaling 3 hours. Recorded in the 3¾ speed and the tape is thin. The tape itself is in rough shape; I have reason to believe that these reels were returned at the...

This is a digitized version of an in-store reel to reel tape that was played within a Kmart store in 1973.  In my opinion, the opening Kmart jingle is the most important artifact of this recording, but the music and small number of commercials make it a great listen. This company listed on the original box is Special Recordings, Inc and is out of Detroit Mi.  As Kmart was based in Michigan, this supplier was most likely somewhat nearby. The recording contains both sides, which are 1 hour long...

This is a digitized version of an in-store reel to reel tape that was played within a Kmart store in December 1974.  The opening Kmart jingle is interesting at the beginning of both hours, and there are theft deterrent security pages and store policy announcements between every few songs.  This must have been in attempt to discourage shoplifting. This is a Tape-Athon product perhaps in their early days - see the attached pictures.  There also was an insert within the reel to reel box...

Prominent Coca Cola advertising is displayed throughout, and an accompanying booklet (to be uploaded) show that this presentation was sponsored by Coca Cola, and not directly related to S. S. Kresge. Interestingly, several S. S. Kresge images were included at the beginning of the filmstrip, including an image of the Kresge world headquarters in 2727 Second at Cass Park:...

This is a digitized version of an in-store cassette tape that was played within a Kmart store. See the title of the file for the month and year. I worked at Kmart between 1989 and 1999 and held onto them with the hopes that they would be of use some day. Enjoy!
